So a few weeks ago, I received a big pile of saris in the mail to make a quilt as part of a quilt auction. The auction is to raise money for Sari Bari
, who states:
Our mission is to offer freedom to women who are trapped in the sex trade and to provide opportunity to women who are vulnerable to trafficking. We do this by providing employment in a safe, loving environment, where women are trained as artisans. The women create beautiful, sustainable, handmade products, while making their lives new.
It's a great cause, but I must admit that when I got the saris, I was a bit stumped! They are not colors or the kinds of prints I would normally work with, so I need your ideas!
I'm thinking of not using the greens (they're a little olivey to go with the blues and purples) and pairing them with a solid. Perhaps a light aqua?
I also have a huge amount of bright pink that I could use, but I worry that this would make the quilt heavy on the medium to dark value range, without having any lights. Though I could add in some scraps for lights?
I was also toying around with this pattern....
But I'm hugely open to suggestions because I don't really know where to go with this!
